I started working on this series around 2014 when the Scottish Independence referendum followed by Brexit quickly pushed nationhood into becoming a very pressing issue in the UK.
Having worked as a photographer since 2000 I have travelled and photographed extensively around the country. I have always been drawn to scenes that give a sense of the country's deep weave. Scenes that capture the significance of homes, industry, infrastructure and landscape. The features and relationships that underpin, sustain and characterise a country.
At a precarious historical time for the UK ‘kingdom’ examines the country’s accumulated environment - its long history and tradition, its development and absorption of change, its social links and boundaries, the common bind and borders of its landscape.
The series aims to offer a perspective on these themes which reaches beyond the current politicking.
